Exodus 19:4 Ye have seen what I did unto  the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles’ wings, and  brought you unto myself. 

Exodus 19:5 Now therefore, if ye will  obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall  be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the  earth is mine: 

Exodus 19:6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom  of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which  thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.  

Exodus 19:7 And Moses came and called for the elders of the  people, and laid before their faces all these words which the  LORD commanded him.

Exodus 19:12 And thou  shalt set bounds unto the people round about, saying, Take  heed to yourselves, that ye go not up into the mount, or  touch the border of it: whosoever toucheth the mount shall  be surely put to death: 

Exodus 19:13 There shall not an hand  touch it, but he shall surely be stoned, or shot through;  whether it be beast or man, it shall not live: when the  trumpet soundeth long, they shall come up to the mount.

Exodus 19:17 And Moses brought forth the people out  of the camp to meet with God; and they stood at the nether  part of the mount. 

Exodus 19:18 And mount Sinai was altogether  on a smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire:  and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace,  and the whole mount quaked greatly.

Exodus 19:23 And Moses said unto the  LORD, The people cannot come up to mount Sinai: for thou  chargedst us, saying, Set bounds about the mount, and  sanctify it.
